The couple announced they were stepping down from their positions back in January. They then made their way to Canada with son Archie for a few weeks.

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

The Commonwealth Day service was the first time the Fab Four — Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton — were photographed together since last year.
A body language expert from Mirror would later analyze the reunion. In the meantime, Middleton made some gestures that appeared to be in good faith towards her sister and brother-in-law.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined The Queen and Members of @TheRoyalFamily for the annual #CommonwealthDay Service at Westminster Abbey. The Commonwealth represents a global network of 54 countries working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals — the Commonwealth theme for 2020 is Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming. Her Majesty The Queen was 26 years old when she became Head of the Commonwealth in 1952 — important symbolic and unifying role. As Head, Her Majesty personally reinforces the links by which the Commonwealth joins people together from around the world. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, this year’s Service celebrated the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all. #CommonwealthDelivers
The event on Monday was documented on Middleton and Williams' Instagram account with several photos. Among them was the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Kate is praised online
A few fans pointed out how it was classy of Middleton to include Markle in the slide. Also included were the Queen as well as Prince Charles and Camilla.
The Princes seem closed off
In contrast, Harry and William were a bit less open and tense. According to the alleged expert, Harry playing with his wedding ring was a sign of needing comfort — probably from wife Markle.
As they waited for the Queen to arrive, the couples had no conversation between them. During the event, there was reportedly no hand-shaking in light of the coronavirus outbreak.
Kate's choice for Commonwealth Day
Middleton went for a red Catherine Walker coat dress for the annual event. She accessorized with a matching fascinator and red pumps. William synced up by wearing a burgundy tie.
While the Duchess of Cambridge looked lovely for the service, she can look just as good when she's not all dressed up. For instance, she was more casual in photos taken a couple of days before.
Kate's weekend fashion options
Elle magazine caught Middleton dressed "down" in a baby blue Mulberry coat and a matching turtleneck sweater underneath. The royal paired it with some dark skinny jeans and black loafers.

Another royal duty that Middleton attended to was the 25th anniversary of her Place2Be charity, which assists children in the UK with mental health issues.
Middleton went with a gorgeous Indian-inspired violet dress from Jenny Packham. She also wore a pair of sparkling Romy 100 Jimmy Choo stilettos.

The charity patron hopes to continue collecting data that will help her identify childhood development problems and determine how she might fix them. We wish her all the best.
